Inhibition of Osteoclast Generation: A Novel Function of the Bone Morphogenetic Protein 7/Osteogenic Protein 1

Abstract

Monocytes have the potential to differentiate to either macrophages, dendritic cells, or to osteoclasts. The microenvironment, particularly cytokines, directs the monocyte differentiation. Receptors of NFκB (RANK) ligand, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) α, or interleukin- (IL-) 8 have be identified as inducers of osteoclastogenesis, whereas others, such as IL… (More)
